Last Few Days

Movers arrive on Monday! Here's the brief version of our next 10 days.

Blake flies in today. BIG reunion at the airport. Family fun tonight. Lots of shopping (kid free!) tomorrow for various things in preparation for Jack's birthday party and Carter's First Communion. Jack's party tomorrow night. Ski day on Sunday. Monday - Wednesday will be a combination of organizing the packing team while keeping the toddlers busy. Wednesday, truck drives out and we move into a hotel. Fun for the kids as we keep them entertained until mass rehearsal on Saturday....actual sacrament on Sunday! Reception to follow....back to our neighbors' house to pick up Batman and change clothes.....lots of hugs and tears as we say goodbye to the precious DeCocco family.....and we're on the road to our new home!

Another hotel stay and then keys and the truck arrive Monday morning. More days of keeping kids busy while I unpack and get us settled.

Whew!!!! I think I need a Red Bull.

3 kids with our traditional claim stamp engraved on the house we leave behind.

Here's to a busy weekend, lots of change and great things ahead!

YAHOO... in just a few short hours you will not longer be in charge of those 3 monkies by yourself! For that reason alone, I'm SO excited for you! So, should we tell Blake you are leaving immdediatly or at least spend a night with the whole crew :)

Shhh.....don't tell him. Flight booked for Mexico in the morning. I'll be back in two weeks when he's all unpacked. :)

I am sooooo excited for you guys. Wish I was there to help but it sounds like you have it all covered.

And you need a red bull AND vodka.

(and red bull is disgusting, I don't know how you drink it?)

Casey, I am just so excited today for you! I have been thinking about you guys all day...really all week!

You are going to have so much more time to yourself with help from Blake! He seems to be such a helpful Dad too...My Ryan is also...we are so lucky!

How exciting to have a fresh start in a new place! Honestly, I am a chicken...I don't think I could do it. You and Merrilee make it look so easy! I would for sure fall apart. but, the idea of changing colors of my house and just starting from scratch sounds like FUN!!

SOOOO HAPPY for you and your family. You deserve a REALLY nice bottle(yes I said bottle and you should drink the whole darn thing) of wine and some time to yourself. You are so amazing and truly do make it all look effortless!!
